This Green Seaweed Salad seriously gets us excited! Not only because it’s absolutely delicious and super easy to make… it’s extremely healthy.
Recently we’ve been packing seaweed in to our diets because it’s full of vitamins and nutrients and the best bit… it’s high in iodine. This is a hot topic for us at the moment as Emma just found out she’s severely deficient in iodine. Read all about this here.
The iodine deficiency definitely has an upside… because it’s forced us to experiment with different and delish iodine rich foods! Like seaweed!
This green seaweed salad has three types of seaweed in it! Organic nori, wakame and dulse flakes, all from the amazing team at Power Super Foods. PLUS our super amazing new photo board was made for us by the lovely Style Curator team!
Sea vegetables help alkalise our bodies from the over-acidity of the modern diet and contain 10 to 20 times MORE bioavailable minerals and vitamins than land vegetables! For example, lack of iodine in the human body (which is widely absent from Australian soils but present in sea vegetables) can create a whole huge range of serious health issues – Power Super Foods.
Yep, that lack of iodine sure can cause a HUGE amount of health issues, listed here.
Have you started eating/cooking with seaweed? We’d love to hear about your seaweed-y experiments!
